We are so used to seeing Detroit firefighters fight fires in multiple vacant dwellings or an abandoned factory you take a little more notice when it’s an occupied high-rise apartment building. This caught my attention from BoxAlarmDetroit. It’s a two-alarm fire at a large building at 1415 Parker Street known as the Parkstone Apartments. The fire was reported around 4:30 yesterday afternoon.
Six people were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation after a fire broke out Friday afternoon at the Parkstone Apartments on Detroit’s east side.
Officials are trying to determine the cause of the fire, which started about 4:30 p.m. in a fourth-floor apartment. One firefighter suffered a minor finger injury.
The massive building at the corner of Agnes and Parker Streets on the city’s east side was evacuated.
A Detroit fire battalion chief on scene said six people were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, but there were no major injuries.
The cause was still under investigation.
